Chris Byrd was the former IBF Heavyweight champion. He defended the title a few times before losing it to Wladimir Klitschko. We all know Chris as the guy who was hard to hit; had slick defensive skills. But did you know he was a middleweight in the 1992 Olympics? You probably did, but I’m sure there are some who didn’t. Check out this entertaining match with Canada’s Chris Johnson.
